We use Arbor for school communication to try to cut down on extensive paperwork. The school use the Arbor system to ensure that letters, newsletters and trip forms reach parents quickly and conveniently, and so that payments can be made easily and safely through the app. We have attached a user guide below which we hope will assist you but if you do have any problems with using the system please contact us, and we will endeavour to help you to resolve these as quickly as possible.
The school office is open from 8.30 - 3.30 daily. The staff are happy to help and answer queries and questions. Please do bear with them during peak times - before and after the end of the school day.
Payments to the School
We try to use the Arbor system for the majority of our school payments. All cash payments to the school need to be placed in an envelope and clearly marked with the amount, your pupil's name and their class. Receipts will be given for payments of over £10.
Springfield jumpers and cardigans can be purchased from the school office during opening hours. This is hardwearing and durable schoolwear which bears the school logo. This are available for £10 per item. The office may have stock available but often this will be ordered for collection. Sizes are available to try on.
There may be occasions when you need your child to be away from school. Please ask permission well in advance. Forms are available from the school office but please remember that we are not allowed to authorise absence for holidays in normal circumstances. There are strict government rules for for this that are detailed on our forms. Children in year six should not be taken out of school during the week of the statutory SATS tests in May.
All medication for pupils needs to be given to the main school office where a medication consent form needs to be completed. In some cases, it may be necessary for parents and the teacher to meet to produce a care plan for the child's medical needs.
We have recently introduced a Nuts Awareness Policy in order to keep all our pupils safe in school. We thank you for your support in adhering to this.
